Publishers Weekly

“Fun and feisty …. [An] effective crossbreeding of romance and urban fantasy that should please fans of either genre.”

Kirkus Reviews

“Vampires and werewolves and hybrids …. oh my! With a butt-kicking heroine and some oh-so-yummy men, Keri Arthur …. has put her own unique spin on things, and the results are a sensual and energized fantasy brimming with plenty of romance.”

“Sexy and exhilarating with characters that revel in their sexuality …. Provocative and edgy with enough heat to scorch the paper it's written on. It's a pleasure to see that within a genre that is getting crowded with uninspired and repetitive stories it is still possible for this author to create a unique and very strong heroine.”

A Romance Review

“Unbridled lust and kick-ass action are the hallmarks of this first novel in a brand-new paranormal series. … ‘Sizzling’ is the only word to describe this heated, action-filled, suspenseful romantic drama. …

Full Moon Rising.
It's a great story that's suspenseful, has hot were wolves, sexy vampires, a huge amount of butt-kickin', and no-holds-barred sex. If you like a twist to your paranormal romance, you'll love this book.”

“Grade A, desert island keeper …. I wanted to read this book in one sitting, and was terribly offended that the real world intruded on my reading time! …. Inevitable comparisons can be made to the Anita Blake, Kim Harrison, and Kelley Armstrong books, but I think Ms. Arthur has a clear voice of her own and her characters speak for themselves. … I am hooked!”

is a sinfully erotic tale filled with hearpounding suspense…Move over, Anne Rice, Keri Arthur is here to stay!”

A Romance Review

“Riley Jenson is kick-ass …. genuinely tough and strong, but still vulnerable enough to make her interesting. … The secondary characters and creatures are rich and diverse. The plots are involved, the action dramatic.
